How can I disable grouping in SfDataGrid

I want to toggle grouping in SfDataGrid on an off.

Is there something better?
This code makes the columns to resize, in some cases to width = 0.

if (Grid.GroupColumnDescriptions.Count > 0)






   foreach (var droupDescription in listPropertyGroupDescription)


                        var group = new GroupColumnDescription()


                            ColumnName = droupDescription.PropertyName

Hi Andreas,


Thank you for using Syncfusion products.


We have analyzed your query and we need more information on your requirement. Based on your title, you can disable the grouping by set AllowGrouping as false. If you would like to add and remove the groups at runtime like toggle the group on or off on specific column by below code snippet,


Code Snippet [C#]:


private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


                     if (sfdatagrid.GroupColumnDescriptions.Any())
